Mathias Neuner Violin 4/4

Mathias Neuner Violin

Mittenwald, Germany

Year: 1812 (? Date on label is obscured)

Body Length: 359mm

This handsome German violin has a two-piece back tight-grained maple with little figuring. The back is so well matched; it looks like a single piece on first glance. Ribs and scroll match. Top is of medium fine-grained spruce. The violin is made in the Stradivari style, and the sound-holes, shape, and corners follow that model. The varnish is a medium dark walnut over a neutral base. On the back, the color is applied in mottled manner allowing the wood to show through. On the top the color is evenly applied overall, with a few patches where the color lightens to add a beautiful contrast. Antiquing is minimal, genuine and honestly earned by years of playing. Light boxwood pegs, chinrest, and tailpiece contrast nicely with this very handsome and well cared for instrument.
